The village of Heckfield can be traced back to the time of the Roman occupation. The name derives from the Saxon "High Veld" and, from the footpaths that criss-cross the fields around the village, there are outstanding views of the surrounding Hampshire countryside. At the time of the Norman Conquest, William the Conqueror gave land around Heckfield to the de Port family who founded the present Parish Church of St Michael.
Today, Heckfield has about 230 registered electors living in many different styles of accommodation from small cottages to large country houses. The village makes an ideal centre for a country break holiday or an out-of-town stopover for business trips.
